Overview

Park Reed is a bastard in every sense of the word. He hasn't always been this way. But after his heart was broken by the only girl he ever loved, being heartless gets him through the day and allows him to fill his nights with the nameless girls he has no intentions of seeing again. He now lives his life following the ever-growing list of “life lessons.”

Lucy Braden is everything Park is not. She’s sweet, caring, and an all-around nice person. She tries to follow Lucy's Rules to Live By every day.

When Park moves in with Jessie, which happens to be the floor below Lucy, Jessie's one stipulation: Lucy is off limits to Park. The problem with that is Lucy is determined to be a good friend to Park and see past the drinking and random girls to find the man beneath it all. The other problem: Park follows his own rules.

*This is a New Adult novel. Recommended for 17+ due to sexual situations, harsh language, and drug and alcohol use.

It is a companion novel to Sometimes Never, and many of its characters are in Park’s story. However, Before Now can be read as a stand-alone book.

Meet the Author

Cheryl McIntyre is a mother, author, and insomniac, as well as a reader, movie critic, and incredibly bad singer. She’s lived in the same area of Ohio her whole life, though she secretly has dreams of moving somewhere a little warmer—preferably near a beach.

Her life revolves around four things: family, music, books, and really bad scary movies. If she doesn’t have a kid on her hip, an iPod in her hand or a laptop in front of her face, it’s one of those rare moments when she’s actually sleeping.

You can follow her author page on Facebook where she lives part time. On Goodreads—which is like crack for avid readers. Or on Twitter, though it’s rumored she has yet to master the art of tweeting. Sadly, this is still very true.

    Very nice

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book! I really liked the interactions between the characters. There was a slight lack of background on the characters, but maybe you had to read book 1. Overall, though, I enjoyed the book, and I will read more books by this author.

    Loved it

    I thought I hated Park after reading Sometimes Never but reading this made me love him. I know that it says this can be read separately but I really, really suggest you read Sometimes Never first. It just makes this book that much better.

    This is another amazing book by Cheryl McIntyre. I adored Sometimes Never and because of it, I didn't think much of Park before this book. But man, did he shape up! Park's freaking HOT!

    BEFORE NOW can be read separately from Sometimes Never, a great plus of course, but I got all fuzzy inside about meeting Hope and Mason and their little quirks as side characters in this book as well. Just like Abbi Glines does in some of her series, you can move into Before Now and already know a lot of the characters if you've read Sometimes Never first.

    Where Sometimes Never was a pioneer New Adult book, BEFORE NOW is full fledged. Cheryl McIntyre clearly doesn't believe in writing predictable stories, that much is clear! Neither does she seem to expect the reader to buy any old crap from the characters without explanation, and I simply adore her for it. Lucy and Park's lives and struggles are achingly unique, and their chemistry insanely, mind-bogglingly hot (rivaling Fifty and Real at times and I'm not kidding!). Polar opposites attracting in a natural and believable way. Yes. More. Gimme more.

    Alright! I made it without one single spoiler!

    Ok, I have to be honest, I didn't like Park in Sometimes Never and Blackbird so I debated about reading his story. Oh wow, how wrong I was … I was blown away by Park and Lucy's story. There is so much going on with Park that we don't know in the other books and it's wonderful to find out who he really is and what makes him tick. Now, I did hate him for a good 1/3 of the book as he behaved like a total jerk but at the same time there are glimmers of hope and watching this all unravel and reveal the TRUE Park is fabulous. Lucy is just a gem and exactly what Park needs as long as he doesn't wreck it. Totally love Lucy's rules to live by … shows great insight into who and how she thinks. Added bonus is all the supporting characters and how they interconnect with each other's stories. So glad I found this series.

    AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!!

    I LOVED this book. The characters were amazing. The story has everything. I laughed out loud & I cried really hard at times. Park and Lucy are so made for eachother. My heart actually ached for them. Park was starving for someone to love him and show him love and Lucy was the perfect person to give it to him. Their friends Bree, Jessie, Guy and Chase were a hoot and very caring and protective friends to have. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I only wish that there was gonna be a sequel or at least carry on to find out what happens to Bree & Jessie. Just sayin Cheryl. Maybe something to think about. LOL Thank You for sharing this story.
